Kids decorate surfboards to celebrate shop’s opening
Young artists will turn surfboards into their canvases tomorrow at the grand-opening party for the Surftech retail showroom and warehouse.
The artists, from kindergarten to high school, will use marking pens, crayons and spray paint in a one-hour surfboard art project.
Surfboard shaper Donald Takayama and longboard champion Dino Miranda will be there to share in the artistic spirit.
The grand opening is timed to help promote the Seventh Annual Duke's OceanFest, next week in Waikiki. For a list of OceanFest events, visit www.dukefoundation.org.
Surftech, at 945 Queen St. in Kakaako, offers boards for surfing, skimming, paddling and kite-boarding, and allows customers to test them in the water before purchasing. Call 596-8693.
